Description Zdenek Kabelac 2008-12-04 12:13:10 EST
Description of problem:

I've started to notice that I'm now missing some text written on the begining of the line:

make -C tools
make[1]: Entering directory `/misc/tools'
       : Nothing to be done for `all'.
       : Leaving directory `/misc/tools'

instead of the text written in xterm:

make[1]: Entering directory `/misc/tools'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/misc/tools'
make -C daemons

Usually could be noticed while running make - I'm not really sure if there are any control command printed or what other reason could be for this behavior.

I can confirm this, but it appears to be an issue with the new vte (0.19.1-1). Cannot reproduce with vte downgraded to 0.17.4-1.fc10. 
Running on modeset radeon r5xx if that matters...

And its not only at the beginning of the line here. See attachment.

Ouch, not good.  Does it happen regularly?  If yes, can one of you record it inside script(1) and see if replaying that reproduces?

Here is one that always has issues. Not always in the same places but almost everytime on the last two lines of output. In general it seems to happen almost every time there is a burst of output at big rate, regardless of what the output actually is.

Just doing  while true ; do  echo -n "#" ; done  produces a very raindrops-falling-upwards display. Pretty random.

Fixed in rawhide.
